As the curtain closes on another La Liga campaign, there is one major issue to resolve – which team will join Alaves and Levante in the second division next season. Real Mallorca, Granada and Cadiz are all looking to secure survival on the final day, with one doomed for the drop. Elsewhere Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao are vying for seventh place and therefore the UEFA Conference League qualifying spot.

Granada vs Espanyol Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 19:00 (UK Time)

Aitor Karanka’s side have burst into life in the last few weeks since the former Real Madrid assistant was appointed. Granada have salvation in their own hands, knowing a win will keep them in the top flight next season and of the three teams desperately trying to avoid relegation, have the most momentum.

When the pressure was on in a recent six-pointer against Mallorca they produced a sparkling 6-2 away victory and I’m backing them to succeed against an Espanyol side virtually on the beach and without suspended top goalscorer Raul de Tomas.

  • Selection: Granada to win -1 (AH)
  • Best odds: 2.30 (Paddy Power)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Osasuna vs Mallorca Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 19:00 (UK Time)

Javier Aguirre’s side salvaged three points in stoppage time against Rayo Vallecano last weekend to stay in the fight for survival and keep their destiny in their own hands.

However the trip to face Osasuna is not the game they would have wished for on the last day of the season, even though the hosts are safe in mid-table.

They are a proud club and will be a challenge for Mallorca rather than a walkover, looking to end the season with a win at El Sadar after six league games without victory.

Osasuna have netted in their last five home games, including against Real Madrid and Villarreal, and I will back both teams to score.

  • Selection: BTTS
  • Best odds: 1.75 (SBK)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Alaves vs Cadiz Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 19:00 (UK Time)

Only two teams have scored fewer goals this season than Cadiz and one of them is Alaves, with 31, the lowest tally in La Liga. 

The hosts were relegated last week but even if they aren’t optimally focused, Cadiz most likely don’t have the tools at their disposal to rack up a big win. 

They have only hit three goals twice this season and are averaging 0.92 a game, while only managing to reach an xG of 2 or over three times across their 37 games to date. They might be able to get the win they need at Alaves but it will likely be a tight affair.

  • Selection: Under 2.5 goals
  • Best odds: 1.93 (Ladbrokes)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Sevilla vs Athletic Bilbao Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 21:00 (UK Time)

With Villarreal at Barcelona, Athletic will be aiming to beat Sevilla and hope their rivals for seventh place slip up. The Andalusians have run out of steam towards the end of the season and just about managed to wrap up their Champions League qualification last weekend with a late goal against Atletico Madrid to draw.

That’s mission complete for Julen Lopetegui’s team and Athletic will aim take advantage at the Ramon-Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday night. It’s not an easy place to visit, though, with Sevilla boasting a strong home record, losing just once there in 18 league games. I think Athletic will make a good go of it but won’t have enough to get the win. 

However, if Villarreal lose at Barcelona, a draw will still be enough to earn them European football next season as they will be level on 56 points and the Basques have the better head-to-head record.

  • Selection: Draw
  • Best odds: 3.50 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10
